lyrics

So sell me now this future
On your branded block of wood
Rising steeples breathing fire
Captains of Industry admired

And the engine that thinks it can
but not if it should

You’re wounded and you’re hungry
Staring right into my face
Your eyes are tired but your will is strong
Sisyphus roll that stone along

And pray to hear the chatter say
Gimmee, got to get me, gotta get it today

Oh grey skies
Owe my world to me
All these grey skies
Owe my world to me

So sit beside the fire
We’re burning up the past
Burning everything that lasts

You won’t listen, so it’s embers
And chambers
And hope someone will rise
Who can take us six feet
So the smell won’t rise

And grey…
Oh my, oh my, oh my God
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my God
Oh my, oh my, oh my, oh my God,
My God My God My God My God I…

Oh grey skies
Owe my world to me
All these grey skies
Owe my world to me
